Is that another line from a song?
It is icy snowy rainy sleety and messy here today! We are inside and staying there.
I am sipping tea and reading this…it’s all chocolatey and magical…this sweet little town in North Carolina believes in the magic that comes from a chocolates from a very special chocolate shop. Penelope…the owner…doesn’t believe in her magical chocolates any more when her small daughter is diagnosed with a serious illness. There is also a totally swoon worthy leather jacket wearing lost love of Penelope’s who returns to this small town from the big city…hmmm…kind of predictable but it’s still a lovely book!
I have totally abandoned fantasy this week other than this book…which I love. This is actually a real book and I have it on my nightstand to read when I am tired of ebooks…
Do these covers look similar to you?
Well…now that I look at them side by side…maybe not so much but sort of? I knew I was reading The Hazel Wood but I was looking at summaries of The Wicker King…both titles were in my head and without seeing the actual covers in front of me…I confused them…both are YA and both are popular but other than the covers…so not alike.
Again…a reminder to myself…I should never pre choose what I will read next. I am a very mood driven reader!
Do you think you are a MOODY reader, too?
I promised Den a soupy soup for dinner…I think I am making this one…This recipe was in the Food Section of the NYT…it’s all pasta and potatoes and greens…in a rich broth.
Have a great day!
